Item Description

 

You are bidding on Orca Spirit - copper killer whale tribal sculpture by Mark Noll!

Solid-copper killer whale sea mammal sculpture 15 inches long and 11 1/2 inches high. Inspired by Pacific Northwest Coast Indian Haida and Tlingit designs.

Hand shaped and formed from a repurposed copper sheet using metalworking chisels, punches, hammers, and mallets. The aged copper sheet was originally used for roof flashing and has a naturally-aged patina.

The permanent inks and verdigris blue-green patina interact with the aged copper surface to create unique and striking colorations.

The surface is brushed with a Permalac clear coating to preserve the color and finish, and buffed with a patina wax. A copper wire is attached for hanging.

Mark signs the piece on the back.

Use and care: This piece can show inside or out. It looks great on a wall or an outside space. The Permalac protective coating has UV protection and has been tested to last at least 10 years outdoors.

Ocean Futures Society feels so lucky to be able to offer you a chance to bid on this very special Killer Whale sculpture donated by our friend, Mark Noll. It will look great hanging on your wall or in your garden!
